Recap by phillip woo

Newcomer Both Sure settled fifth along the rails, came one off upon straightening and really let down in the final 100m to snatch victory close to home. Spitfire rushed forward to lead at the 1,000m from London Walk, cornered just under a length on top, shot clear by two at the 200m and was overhauled late in a much-improved run. Jazzy Feeling travelled midfield and two off the rails with cover, swung the final bend five deep and stayed on all right to just hold third from a fast-finishing St Yazin, who made his run second from the rear and was sailing late on the far outside. Sunny Fay settled third from the rear following a sluggish break, switched into the clear with two wider out at the 200m and was doing some nice work late without menacing. Turf Magic bided his time fourth from the rear, stayed near the inside upon straightening and got going late. All Friends was travelling without cover three deep, worked to second at the 500m, cornered four deep and was stopping 100m out. Favourite You Read My Mind was fired up in the run in fourth, was under the pump 450m out but only made a mild bid over the final 150m with a step up to the 1,200m following a 1,000m win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (097)-PHOENIX HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

SUNNY FAY was slow to begin.

BOTH SURE began awkwardly and shortly after the start was hampered by YOU READ MY MIND which got its head on the side and shifted in.

From the outside barrier, LUCKY HAMMER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Despite being ridden along in the early stages, MY GOAL failed to muster speed.

W M Lai (LONDON WALK) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after assuming the lead near the 1000 Metres he steadied his mount, causing the tempo of the race to slacken abruptly which resulted in YOU READ MY MIND being hampered and BOTH SURE having to be checked away from the heels of LONDON WALK for some distance and in turn causing SPOKE TO CARLO to be checked away from the heels of BOTH SURE.

W M Lai was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 10 November 2013 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Wednesday, 30 October 2013.

Passing the 600 Metres, SPOKE TO CARLO, which was travelling keenly, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of YOU READ MY MIND.

YOU READ MY MIND raced tight rounding the Home Turn between JAZZY FEELING and LONDON WALK which shifted out to obtain clear running.

In this incident, YOU READ MY MIND made contact with the hindquarters of JAZZY FEELING which became unbalanced.

After the 200 Metres, TURF MAGIC was steadied and shifted in when disappointed for running between ALL FRIENDS and BOTH SURE which shifted out under pressure.

Over the final 100 Metres, SPOKE TO CARLO got its head on the side and hung in and in doing so bumped YOU READ MY MIND, causing both horses to become unbalanced.

SPOKE TO CARLO continued to hang in over the concluding stages and because of this was not able to be fully tested in the run to the finishing line.

Close to the finishing line, SUNNY FAY was struck across the head by the whip of D Whyte (ST YAZIN).

Throughout the race, ALL FRIENDS travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of YOU READ MY MIND, K Teetan stated that his mount over-raced for the first 200 Metres of the event.

He said after this YOU READ MY MIND commenced to settle better, however, after the 500 Metres he was obliged to ride his mount along in an endeavour to maintain its position and after momentarily racing tight rounding the Home Turn between JAZZY FEELING and LONDON WALK was then disappointing in its failure to finish off the race as it did at its first run this season when successful.

He added that, in his opinion, the principal reason for the horses disappointing performance was the fact that it over-raced in the early stages which was not the case at its last start.

A veterinary inspection of YOU READ MY MIND immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

YOU READ MY MIND, BOTH SURE and SPITFIRE were sent for sampling.
